Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman blasted the NFL on Tuesday for continuing to schedule Thursday night games, Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com reports.
“Poopfest. It’s terrible,” Sherman said. “We got home like 1 o’clock in the morning, something like that on Monday and then you’ve got to play again. Congratulations, NFL, you did it again. But they’ve been doing it all season, so I guess we’re the last ones to get the middle finger.”
The Seahawks visited the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. They host the Los Angeles Rams at home on Thursday.
Sherman said his body will likely be only 50 to 60 percent recovered by the time the Seahawks have to play again.
He has taken the league to task on a number of things this season, but he said Thursday night games are among the top five issues he has with the NFL.
“Because it’s just no regard,” Sherman said. “It’s hypocritical, as I’ve stated before. They make this huge stance about player safety. Then you put the players in tremendous danger.
